Josh, The track down in Woodville has felt low grip as of late, Ill try this setup unless you have a different suggestion. Any racing going on this saturday? I'd like to bring the Evo2 up and do some racing!

Here's a set-up from a race last year - It was lower bite compared to most other US races so it should be a good starting point for you.
Thx a lot! lets hope the C12 runs more consistent than my GenX
Josh, are there any parts suppliers in Europe or is all my hope (and shipping costs) set on the US? But hey, if you wanna drive something different...

NO OVAL THIS WEEKEND!!!!!

We were going to have a Bird's oval warm-up but due to a lot of guys going to other places, we decided to cancel the oval and we will be running on-road both Sat and Sunday!!

nrtv20 - No racing on Sat, just on-road practice...

bigemike - Sometimes we have rubber tire guys come out but it's really not that often... Everyone here runs foams...

I've ran rubber tire there a few times, so we've had a few race days where it did happen. I can only come out about once every two weeks, the last 2 times I brought my car but no one else to run rubber with. No worries, I alway's pack a 1/12th scale. I was just thinking, would the foam guys running 13.5's let me race with them if I've got a 10.5 and rubber tires?

Tom,

I am sure that anybody that shows up with a rubber tire will have a class or group to race with.

Heck they even let people from Tennessee race.

I hope I can give it a try tommorrow. I'll either be too busy tuning my new BL setup I picked up yesterday for my 1/12th scale, or at home weathering this cold I have.

I'd like to ask if anyone out there from CEFX want to do something for electric outdoor racing this summer? Its still possible to get something together for the springtime, I just need help getting stuff together and organized before the season begins, so if you'd like to see this happen please pay a visit to the forum I setup on the DRCCC website.

Mike - You have to use the CEFX motor plates. They are different than AE or anyone else and symetrical left/right.
